• The time for which AA-size alkaline batteries (referred
to hereafter simply as alkaline batteries) can be used
varies depending on the brand. Some brands of alkaline
batteries may stop providing power more quickly than
those supplied with the camera. Note also that due to
their nature, the time for which alkaline batteries can be
used decreases in cold conditions (0°C to +10°C/+32°F
to +50°F). For this reason, it is better to use AA-size NiMH batteries.
• Due to the nature of the battery, the battery level
warning (
, V) may appear early when the
camera is used in cold locations. Try warming the
batteries in your pocket or a similar location before use.
• Depending on the battery type and the level of charge
in the batteries, the camera may run out of power
without first displaying a battery level warning. This is
particularly likely to happen when batteries that have
run out of charge once are re-used.
• Depending on the camera mode, the transition from
to V may occur more quickly.
• Use Fujifilm Battery charger (sold separately) to charge
AA-size Ni-MH batteries.
• See p.157-158 for information on the batteries.
• When first purchased or if left unused for a long period,
the amount of time which AA-size Ni-MH batteries can
be used may be short. See p.158 for more information.
• Battery power consumption varies greatly depending
on use. When you change to Playback mode from
Photography mode,
may not occur, however,
V may suddenly blink red and the camera may stop
operation.
Getting Ready
Turn the camera on and check the battery charge.

d Setting the Flash (Intelligent Flash)
Flash photography is useful for taking pictures at night or
indoor dark locations. Choose from 6 flash modes
according to the type of shot. See p.76 for information on
the available Photography modes.
MEMO
When using the flash to take a picture of people in lowlight conditions, their eyes sometimes appear red in the
picture. This is caused by the light of the flash reflecting
off the inside of the eye.
d FORCED FLASH
Use this mode in backlit scenes, or to get the correct
colors when taking a picture under bright lighting.
In this mode, the flash fires in bright as well as dark
conditions.
C SUPPRESSED FLASH
This mode is suitable for situations where the flash cannot
be used.
Use a tripod to prevent camera shake when shooting in
Suppressed flash mode in the dark condition.
Any time, flash does not fire.
The flash setting changes
each time you press d (q).
MEMO
When pressing the shutter button down halfway, b
appears on the screen before the flash fires.
AUTO Auto flash (not displayed)
Use this mode for ordinary photography.
The flash fires as required by the shooting conditions.
b RED EYE REDUCTION
This mode is suitable for shooting portraits in
low-light conditions.
Use this mode to minimize red-eye (eyes
appear in red in the finished photo).
Advanced Features — Photography
By calculating subject distance and brightness, the
camera automatically adjusts the flash amount and
sensitivity to suit shooting conditions. This maintains
consistent balance of bright/dark areas across the image
in low-light conditions (dimly-lit room, etc). The Intelligent
Flash feature guarantees consistent results when using
the flash.
MEMO Red-eye effect
c SLOW SYNCHRO,
n RED EYE & SLOW
This mode allows you to take pictures of people at night
that clearly show both your subjects and the night time
backdrop. To prevent camera shake, always use a tripod.
Using n synchronizes Red-eye reduction mode.
Using 8 selects slow shutter speeds of up to 4 seconds.
CAUTION
In bright scenes, overexposure may occur.

Overview of the Conversion Lens
Z Wide Conversion Lens WL-FXS6
This accessory converts the focal length of your lens by
0.8 times (equal to a 22.4 mm wide-angle lens) without
changing its F-stop value.
Z Wide conversion lens specifications
Magnification
×0.8
Lens configuration
3 lenses in 3 groups
Shooting range
approx. 40 cm (1.3 ft.) to infinity
Dimensions
ø95 mm (3.7 in.) × L37.5 mm (1.5
in.)
Weight
approx. 214 g (7.5 oz.)
Accessories
lens caps (front and rear), Lens
pouch
CAUTION
• The WL-FXS6 should only be used for wide-angle shots
where distortion does not occur. Using the lens at the
telephoto setting increases the amount of distortion.
• The wide conversion lens and built-in flash cannot be
used together.
• When using the wide conversion lens, there is a
possibility of ghost images in shots that are taken facing
towards the sun or very strong light.
This risk can be decreased or eliminated by framing the
shot so that bright light sources such as the sun are out
of the shot as much as possible.
MEMO
What is ghost image?
Ghost image is an effect whereby strong light shining
directly into the lens causes random reflections within the
lens that appear as circles or rings of light at different
points to the original light source.
Appendices
Mount the Wide conversion lens by screwing in the
direction of arrow.

• In contact with chemicals such as pesticides
• Next to rubber or vinyl products
Z Damaged by Water or Sand
FinePix S6000fd / FinePix S6500fd can be damaged on
the inside and outside by water and sand. When you are
at the beach or close to water, make sure that the camera
is not damaged by water or sand. Take care not to place
the camera on a wet surface.
Z Damaged by Condensation
If the camera is carried from a cold location into a warm
place, water droplets (condensation) may form on the
inside of the camera or on the lens. When this occurs, turn
the camera off and wait an hour before using the camera.
Condensation may also form on the xD-Picture Card. In
this event, remove the xD-Picture Card and wait a short
time.
156
Z When the Camera is Not Used or is stored Periods
of Time
If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period of
time, remove the batteries and the xD-Picture Card.
Z Cleaning Your Camera
• Use a blower brush to remove any dust on the lens,
LCD monitor or viewfinder, and then gently wipe the
camera with a soft, dry cloth. If any soil remains, apply
a small amount of lens cleaning liquid to a piece of
FUJIFILM lens cleaning paper and wipe gently.
• Do not scratch hard objects against the lens, LCD
monitor or viewfinder.
• Clean the body of the camera with a soft, dry cloth. Do
not use volatile substances or cleaning products these
items can cause damage.
Z Using the Camera When Traveling
When traveling overseas, do not place your camera in the
check-in baggage. Baggage can be subjected to violent
shocks, and the camera may be damaged inside or
outside.
SU1870GB.book Page 157 Monday, August 14, 2006 2:35 AM
Power Supply and Batteries
Applicable Batteries
• In the camera, use AA-size alkaline or Ni-MH (nickelmetal hydride) rechargeable batteries.
Do not use AA-size manganese or nickel-cadmium (NiCd) batteries in your FinePix S6000fd / FinePix S6500fd
because the heat created by the batteries could
damage the camera or cause it not to work.
• The life of alkaline batteries varies between brands. The
life of batteries you purchase may be shorter than those
provided with the camera.
Notes on the Batteries
If any liquid at all leaks from the batteries, wipe the
battery compartment thoroughly and then load new
batteries.
If any battery fluid comes into contact with your hands
or clothing, flush the area thoroughly with water. Note
that battery fluid can cause loss of eyesight if it gets
into your eyes. If this occurs, do not rub your eyes.
Flush the fluid out with clean water and contact your
physician for treatment.
Appendices
Incorrect use of the batteries could cause them to leak,
become hot, ignite, or burst. Always observe the
precautions given below.
• Do not heat the batteries or throw them into a fire.
• Do not carry or store batteries with metal objects such
as necklaces or hairpins.
• Do not expose the batteries to water, and keep batteries
from getting wet or stored in moist locations.
• Do not attempt to take apart or change the batteries,
including battery casings.
• Do not subject the batteries to strong impacts.
• Do not use batteries that are leaking, deformed,
discolored.
• Do not store batteries in warm or humid places.
• Keep the batteries out of reach of babies and small
children.
• Make sure that the battery polarity (+ and ,) is
correct.
• Do not use new with used batteries. Do not use charged
and discharged batteries together.
• Do not use different types or brands of batteries at the
same time.
• If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period
of time, remove the batteries from the camera. Note if
the camera is left with the batteries removed, the time
and date settings are cleared.
• The batteries feel warm right after being used. Before
removing the batteries, turn the camera off and wait for
the batteries to cool down.
• Since batteries do not work well in cold weather or
locations, warm the batteries by placing them inside
your garments before use. Batteries do not work well
when cold. They will work again when the temperature
returns to normal.
• Soil (such as fingerprints) on the battery terminals
makes the batteries charge less reducing the number of
images. Carefully wipe the battery terminals with a soft
dry cloth before loading.
157
SU1870GB.book Page 158 Monday, August 14, 2006 2:35 AM
Power Supply and Batteries
Using the AA-size Ni-MH batteries correctly
• As a power source in digital cameras, AA-size Ni-MH
batteries (referred to hereafter as Ni-MH batteries) are
superior to alkaline batteries in several ways, such as
allowing more shots to be taken with the camera.
However, care must be taken with the way Ni-MH
batteries are used if their original performance is to be
maintained.
• Ni-MH batteries left unused in storage for long periods
can become “deactivated”. Also, repeatedly charging
Ni-MH batteries that are only partially discharged can
cause them to suffer from the “memory effect”.
Ni-MH batteries that are “deactivated” or affected by
“memory” suffer from the problem of only providing
power for a short time after being charged. To prevent
this problem, discharge and recharge them several
times using the camera’s “Discharging rechargeable
batteries” function. By repeating this cycle several
times, the temporary reduction in performance caused
by “memory” or “deactivation” can be remedied and the
batteries can be restored to their original performance
levels.
Deactivation and memory are specific to Ni-MH
batteries and are not in fact battery faults. See p.159160 for the procedure for “Discharging rechargeable
batteries”.
CAUTION
Do not use the “Discharging rechargeable batteries”
function when alkaline batteries being used.
158
• To charge Ni-MH batteries, use the quick battery
charger (sold separately). Refer to the instructions
supplied with the charger to make sure that the charger
is used correctly.
• Do not use the battery charger to charge other batteries.
• Note that the batteries feel warm after being charged.
• Due to the way the camera is constructed, a small
amount of current is used even when the camera is
turned off. Note in particular that leaving Ni-MH
batteries in the camera for a long period will
overdischarge the batteries and may render them
unusable even after recharging.
• Ni-MH batteries will self-discharge even when not used,
and the time for which they can be used may be
shortened as a result.
• Ni-MH batteries will deteriorate rapidly if
overdischarged (e.g. by discharging the batteries in a
flashlight). Use the “Discharging rechargeable
batteries” function provided in the camera to discharge
the batteries.
• Ni-MH batteries have a limited service life. If a battery
can only be used for a short time even after repeated
discharge-charge cycles, it may have reached the end
of its service life.

Discharging rechargeable
batteries
The Discharging rechargeable batteries function can only
be used with Ni-MH batteries.
The Discharging rechargeable batteries function should
not be used with alkaline batteries as it will completely
drain the battery charge.
Use the Discharging rechargeable batteries function in
the following situations:
• When the batteries only last for a short time after being
charged normally
• When the batteries have not been used for a long period
• When you purchase new Ni-MH batteries
Do not use the Discharging rechargeable batteries
function while using the AC power adapter. In these
situations, the Ni-MH batteries will not be discharged due

Notes on the xD-Picture Card™ and the Internal Memory
Z Image Memory Card
• This Image Memory Card is a new image recording
media (xD-Picture Card) developed for digital
cameras. The Image Memory Card consists of a
semiconductor memory (NAND-type flash memory) to
record digital image data.
The recording process is electrically performed and
enables erasure of existing image data as well as rerecording of new image data.
• When using a new Memory Card, or a Memory Card
that has been formatted by a PC, be sure to format the
card with your digital camera before using it.
Z Internal Memory
• Images held in the camera’s internal memory may be
corrupted or erased due to problems such as camera
faults. Save your important data to another media (i.e.,
DVD-R, CD-R, CD-RW, hard disk, etc.).
• Data stored in the camera’s internal memory cannot be
guaranteed in the event that the camera is submitted for
repairs.
• When the camera is repaired, any data stored in the
camera’s internal memory is subject to checking by the
repairer.
Save your important data to another media (i.e., DVD-R,
CD-R, CD-RW, hard disk, etc.).
Z Handling xD-Picture Card
• When storing xD-Picture Cards, make sure that they
are kept out of the reach of children. An xD-Picture
Card could be swallowed cause suffocation. If a child
swallows an xD-Picture Card, seek medical attention
or call emergency number right away.
• When inserting the xD-Picture Card into the camera,
hold the xD-Picture Card straight as you push it in.
• Do not expose an xD-Picture Card to shock. Do not
apply pressure, and avoid bending.
• Do not use or store xD-Picture Card in hot and humid
places.
• Clean the xD-Picture Card with a soft dry piece of cloth
when dirty.
• When carrying or storing an xD-Picture Card, keep it in
the special protective case.
• The xD-Picture Card will work well for long time, but will
sooner or later lose its ability to store and play back
images or movies. If this happens replace it with a new
xD-Picture Card.
• Never remove the xD-Picture Card or turn the camera
off during data recording or erasing (xD-Picture Card
formatting) as this could be damaged to the xD-Picture
Card.
• The use of xD-Picture Cards is recommended with
FinePix S6000fd / FinePix S6500fd.
The recording quality cannot be guaranteed when xDPicture Cards other than those manufactured by
FUJIFILM are used.
Appendices
Z Protecting Your Data
• Images and movies may be lost or destroyed in the
following situations. Please note that FUJIFILM
assumes no responsibility for data that is lost or
destroyed.
1.Removal of the memory card or turning the power off
while the memory card or internal memory is being
accessed (i.e., during record, erase, initialization, and
playback operations).
2.Improper handling and use of the memory card or
internal memory by the user or third party.

Notes on the xD-Picture Card™ and the Internal Memory
• The xD-Picture Card may feel warm when it is removed
from the camera after taking pictures. This is normal.
• Do not put labels on the xD-Picture Card. Peeling
labels can cause the camera not to work properly.
Z Specifications
Type
Memory type
Conditions for use
MEMO
• There are two types of xD-Picture Card: standard type
and Type M (containing “M” in the model number, such
as DPC-M1GB).
FinePix S6000fd / FinePix S6500fd is compatible with
Type M, however they may not be compatible
depending on the device used (Image Memory Card
Reader, etc.).
• While Type H and M share the same compatibility. Type
H cannot be used with xD-Picture Card USB drive
DPC-UD1, while Type M can.
Z Using xD-Picture Card or Internal Memory with a
PC
• When taking pictures using an xD-Picture Card or
internal memory that has been used on a PC, reformat
the xD-Picture Card or internal memory using your
camera for best quality.
• When formatting an xD-Picture Card or internal
memory, a directory (folder) is created. Image data is
then recorded in this directory.
• Do not change or delete the directory (folder) or file
names on the xD-Picture Card or internal memory
because this will make it impossible to use the xDPicture Card or internal memory in your camera.
• Always use the camera to erase image data on an xDPicture Card or internal memory.
• To edit image data, copy or transfer the image data to
the PC and edit the copied or transferred data.

According to the CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standard procedure for measuring
digital still camera battery consumption (extract):
When using alkaline batteries, use the batteries supplied with the camera. You can use Ni-MH batteries
also. The storage media should be xD-Picture Card.
Pictures should be taken at a temperature of +23°C (+73°F), with the LCD monitor turned on, the optical
zoom moved from full wide-angle to full telephoto (or vice-versa) and back again to its original position
every 30 seconds, the flash used at full power every second shot and the camera turned off and then on
again once every 10 shots.
• Note: Because the number of available shots varies depending on the capacity of alkaline batteries or
the level of charge in Ni-MH batteries, the figures shown here for the number of available shots
using batteries are not guaranteed.
The number of available shots will also decline at low temperatures.

Specifications
If you shoot using the xD-Picture Cards with model numbers containing “M” such as DPC-M1GB, movie recording time may be
reduced if you repeatedly record and erase (frame erase) image files. In such a case, erase all frames or format the xD-Picture Card
before use. Back up important frames (files) onto your PC or another media.
* These specifications are subject to change without notice. FUJIFILM shall not be held liable for damages resulting from
errors in this Owner’s Manual.
* The LCD monitor on your digital camera is manufactured using advanced high-precision technology. Even so, small bright
points and anomalous colors (particularly around text) may appear on the monitor. These are normal display characteristics
and do not indicate a fault with the monitor. This phenomenon will not appear on the recorded image.
* The operation error may be caused in a digital camera by the strong radio interference (i. e. electric fields, static electricity,
line noise, etc.).
* Due to the nature of the lens, the edges of images may appear distorted. This is normal.

Explanation of Terms
Deactivated batteries
Leaving an Ni-MH battery unused in storage for a long period may cause a rise in the level of substances that inhibit current
flow inside the battery and result in a dormant battery. A battery in this state is referred to as deactivated.
Because current flow is inhibited in a deactivated Ni-MH battery, the battery’s original level of performance cannot be achieved.
EV
A number denotes Exposure Value. The EV is determined by the brightness of the subject and sensitivity (speed) of the film
or CCD. The number is larger for bright subjects and smaller for dark subjects. As the brightness of the subject changes, a
digital camera maintains the amount of light hitting the CCD at a constant level by adjusting the aperture and shutter speed.
When the amount of light striking the CCD doubles, the EV increases by 1. Likewise, when the light is halved, the EV decreases
by 1.
Frame rate (fps)
The frame rate refers to the number of images (frames) that are photographed or played back per second. For example, when
10 frames are continuously photographed in a 1-second interval, the frame rate is expressed as 10 fps.
For reference, TV images are displayed at 30 fps (NTSC).
JPEG
Joint Photographic Experts Group
A file format used for compressing and saving color images. The higher the compression rate, the greater the loss of quality in
the decompressed (restored) image.
Memory effect
If an Ni-MH battery is repeatedly charged without first being fully discharged, its performance may drop below its original level.
This is referred to as the “memory effect”.
Motion JPEG
A type of AVI (Audio Video Interleave) file format that handles images and sound as a single file. Images in the file are recorded
in JPEG format. Motion JPEG can be played back by QuickTime 3.0 or later.
Smear
A phenomenon specific to CCDs whereby white streaks appear on the image when there is a very strong light source, such as
the sun or reflected sunlight, in the photography screen.
WAVE
A standard format used on Windows systems for saving audio data. WAVE files have the “.WAV” file extension and the data
can be saved in either compressed or uncompressed format. Uncompressed recording is used on this camera.
WAVE files can be played back on a personal computer using the following software:
Windows: MediaPlayer
Macintosh: QuickTime Player
* QuickTime 3.0 or later

SU1870GB.book Page 182 Monday, August 14, 2006 2:35 AM
Explanation of Terms
White Balance
Whatever the kind of the light, the human eye adapts to it so that a white object still looks white. On the other hand, devices
such as digital cameras see a white subject as white by first adjusting the color balance to suit the color of the ambient light
around the subject. This adjustment is called matching the white balance.
Exif Print Format is a newly revised digital camera file format that contains a variety of shooting information for optimal printing.
